Consider running away to the circus at the Gamma Phi Circus Morning Show at Illinois State University! We at Gamma Phi Circus at Illinois State University would like to cordially invite you to join us for the 27th Annual Gamma Phi Circus Morning Show on Friday, April 22, 2022 under the Redbird Arena Big Top, in Normal, IL. Our morning show begins at 10:00am and concludes by noon.
In 2022, Gamma Phi Circus will celebrate our 93rd year as an organization at Illinois State University. We are the oldest and longest running collegiate circus in the United States, carrying forward a long-held tradition of circus in Bloomington-Normal and the Midwest. The members of Gamma Phi Circus are students, faculty, and staff of Illinois State University. Members are representatives of all colleges and a variety of majors. Between multiple practices a week and campus and road exhibitions, members hone their skills in their respective acts throughout the academic year. The Morning Show demonstrates the collective hard work and achievements of the Gamma Phi Circus members and we invite you and your students to enjoy the show!
The Morning Show is a favorite field trip experience of many schools in the state of Illinois. It showcases the individual dedication and teamwork inherent in circus performance, with over 80 performers in more than a dozen acts including German Wheel, Trampoline Wall, Silks and Lyric Hoop (aerial), Trapeze, Russian Swing, Tightwire, Juggling, Acrobatics, Clowning, and much, much more. Each year thousands of K-12 students join us for the fun, thrills, and excitement of a circus performance just for them. We hope your students can be a part of this year's Morning Show!
